Scheduling snafus, controversies, and an uphill battle were among the events encircling last night’s Northern Indiana Social events for those in Michiana. I would be less than honest if I didn’t confess that my thoughts on the drive up were with them.
My thoughts were also on that drive up US 12 along the National Lakeshore. Its been too long since I had a good sundown drive along the lake, listening to good live music. It’s the first time I drove that route, in that setting, in that car. But I’d a sworn the car knew every curve.
It put me in a Tweetup state of grace.
The first thing I heard when I got to the “It’s Vegas, Baby,” room was that the Michiana Tweetup was a success, and that a few of them made the drive over to be with us. Michelle Hillaert, Between the Buns Grill…wow. I was glad they hadn’t had their taste for Tweetups spoiled.
Fun, friends, foods…and though Blue Chip Casino no longer carries Gumballhead, it was good to be back for the evening.
As we say at NWITweetup regarding monthly meetups:
If it ain’t free, it ain’t for me. It’s the only way to be.
…with the exception of the occasional killer milk & honey events like Social Media Club.

What I hope the Michiana tweeps learned from the evening is that choices are plentiful. Nobody needs to get pigeonholed into any one particular event.
And they all can work together.
